'Compare NDC, NPP achievements before voting'

By The Statesman

Prince Yaw Boahen, First Vice-Chairman of the New Edubiase Constituency of the NPP, has called on the electorate in the area to compare the achievements of the NDC and NPP before casting their votes in the December elections.

He said despite the constituency seat being currently held by the NDC, the NPP government had not discriminated in ensuring the fair distribution of social amenities in raising the standard of living of the people in the Adansi South District.

Addressing an NPP rally at Menang near New Edubiase in Ashanti, Mr Boahen said over eleven communities were now enjoying electricity whiles extension of power to five communities are in progress as against only six during the NDC administration in the constituency.

He said Menang now enjoys potable water, electricity and the reshaping of the New Edubiase Junction-Menang feeder road has started to enhance easy transportation of goods and services.

Mr Boahen called on the people to vote massively for the NPP this time round to enable it continue with its developmental agenda to benefit them.

Anthony Appiah, the Constituency Secretary, debunked the tribal politics being campaigned by NDC in the area and said this does not augur well for good neighbourliness of the people.

Degraft Kyei-Baffour, the NPP parliamentary candidate, said his main priority when given the mandate will be in the area of education, where he would give scholarships to the needy but brilliant children to further their education to a higher level.

He said he will ensure the establishment of a vocational/technical school in the constituency to train school drop outs in vocational trade.

In another development, Akwasi Ameyaw Cheremeh, the New Patriotic Party's parliamentary candidate for Sunyani East has urged the electorate to study the manifestoes of the various political parties before casting their votes on December 7.

He said all the political parties had their own visions and it was up to Ghanaians to decide which party they wanted to rule the country.

The candidate was speaking at the inauguration of the Nkwabeng South Association at Nkwabeng in Sunyani at the weekend.

Mr Cheremeh said it was the responsibility of every Ghanaian to exercise his or her franchise as a right.

"We all need to cast our votes on the elections day and in a peaceful manner to help sustain the peace in the country', he said. GNA
